It's supposed to be in the Great Marsh, if you mean D/P/P. I hate those areas. It seems like an impossible task to catch a rare Pokémon there; give me a Quick Ball and False Swipe and I'll wear it down for another ball if need be.
I don't need a Celebi, I have the Lv.50 event one that has since met its friend Zorua at Castelia City.
I'm still looking up Carnivine, but still not liking the prospect. I can't get it until I get to the Viridian Forest, though it appears in the Ilex Forest as well with Sinnoh Sound after the E4. No worries, I'll get one for ya, it just might take some time.
Unfortunately, Latios is still some ways away; it seems I have to visit Copycat and get a doll first, then upon leaving the city, the roaming Latios is triggered. I'm only 4/8 on Gyms, and obviously, I have to finish the Pokémon League to continue exploring Kanto, sooo...
I'm going to have to rely on the Action Replay someday to grant myself an Enigma Stone in order to catch Latias at Pewter City. The 3DS version should arrive. Someday. That will let me unlock the Lock Capsule item as well, getting me TM95, Snarl.
Naahh Zoroark (Illusion pokemon you were talking about, right?) is UU. So don't worry about that. And honestly, it's difficult to calculate the IVs of a pokemon based on one stat at lv.1 without knowing the rest of the stats, what pokemon it is, and what stat you're talking about but here is an IV calculator that can help determine the IVs of an individual pokemon.
If you want a Ferrothorn suited for competitive play, Ferroseed wants a Relaxed nature [+Defense; -Speed]. A Lax nature raises Defense and lowers Special Defense so..
EDIT: Oh, and if you're going with Ferrothorn over Forretress, Jellicent still makes a great partner for the same reasons (spin blocking). That and Jellicent and Ferrothorn as a team resist every type attack except ground and flying. :]
Well, right now the raters are suggesting you pokemon that stay in the OU tier, which is the standard play. So like, Forretress and Jellicent are OU. Pokemon like Blastoise are NU (possibly RU) and cannot viably be used in OU (because there are pokemon in OU that can do Blastoise's job better). And pokemon like Garchomp are in the Uber tier and are therefore banned from standard play.
However, there are plenty of great Dragons in OU you can choose from! Like Haxorus, Dragonite, and the Lati-Twins, just to name a few. If you want a full list of the Dragon pokemon viable in OU or want good competitive sets for them, just ask! ^o^
Hey there! I wanted to follow up with you personally to make sure your team is doing well! n_n;
Don't forget to post an RMT once your team of (ideally 6, but we can work with 5) is complete and up to competitive standards! And don't be afraid to ask the raters any questions you have! I'll be posting a small response about your Forretress soon!
Don't worry about it on HG/SS. I'm more interested in catchables including legendaries on there. I won't be seeking actively ones I already have on Black by that point. I'll still try to do exclusive trades however (Spinda for Ledyba for instance).
